Planners look to resolve problems and conflicts after new system launched. Defense planners are now testing their new electronic medical records system at a second set of sites, confident that better training and better messaging will lead to fewer conflicts and concerns than they saw in the first wave of rollouts, officials told Federal Times this week.The move comes about five months after the militarys transition to the MHS GENESIS records system was blasted by internal department watchdogs as not operationally effective and lacking enough workable functionality as the system was deployed to its first four medical sites.But military officials and industry partners in the sweeping medical records overhaul insist that most of those concerned expected challenges in adapting military personnel to using a new system, not critical flaws in the multi-year plan to replace legacy records with the updated option.I definitely see a shift in adoption and in excitement, said Stacy Cummings, head of the Program Executive Office for Defense Healthcare Management Systems, in an interview with Federal Times.Everybody I have talked to would say this is our future from legacy to MHS GENESIS is a very positive comparison.
